Hi Buell, I hope all is well with you! I know it's been over a year since you wrote this but I've always been so busy with fitting in the comic stuff that checking places like this just started to slide. In fact since joining DA many moons ago I totally forget the place exists until I'm looking for a a really nice stock pic.
Anyways I'm here today and cringeing at the pile of comments left over the past year that I've clearly missed. You wrote a lot though, so despite the amount of time that's passed I really felt I had to respond after reading it.
Firstly, WOW, this was such a lovely and passionate piece to read this morning and tbh it got to me a little. Firstly it seems so long ago now since Sarah and Janey split up that I'd forgotten just how strong the reaction was at the time to the affair. I knew I was treading on very thin ice as the majority of readers had a 'cheat one me and you're out!' attitude in RL so it was expected to show through in the responses but like like you and a small band of others I felt there were deeper issues worth considering and the main being that Sarah always seemed to have more time for everyone else than she did her own g/f. I never portrayed Janey as being perfect either and at times she did come across as pretty selfish too so I did feel and still do that given enough time to mature and experience more from other relationships the two would eventually realise they really had something special that few relationships ever have, which would eventually bring them back together with amuch better appreciation of each other and a stronger commitment to integrity for a happy ending.
Thanks again for taking the time to write all this and I apologise for not having responded sooner.
